It’s your full guide to life in Emmerdale for the week of the 16-20 August, 2021.

April is left terrified by her bullies

April’s sense of despair over the trolling she’s being subjected to is escalating but Marlon hasn’t noticed. The chef is distracted by a bad review the pub has received, and there’s also the bill for April’s birthday party, which he can’t afford. April, meanwhile, is opening her cards, only to find that one of them is typed and from her tormentor.

Doubting that he’ll see this as good news, Leyla decides to keep quiet. But Jacob clocks that something is wrong and tells Priya that he’s worried about Leyla. After calling round, Leyla puts Priya in the picture but makes a heartfelt plea: she mustn’t tell Liam as a bombshell such as this can’t be dropped in his world while he’s still grieving. The way Leyla sees it, this pregnancy could well end her and her husband’s marriage.

Meena snatches young Theo?

As you’d expect, Meena is seething about the friendship between David and Victoria. And when Meena gets mad, bad things start to happen. So, what we’ll witness is Victoria being left with a chilling surprise while she takes care of her son Harry and David’s little boy Theo.

It’s news that immediately puts a smile on Sarah’s face, but Noah is quick to offer a word of caution. But since when did anyone listen to sound advice on a soap? Expect Sarah to realise very soon that she’s in too deep, while Noah is left with deep unease about her actions.
